Musical Buttons -- Slogans With A Song

It is often said of topical songwriters that we are just using music as a vehicle for our political rantings. Well here's the proof -- actual slogans set to music that you can wear on your website or post on your Facebook page! Kind of like a button you'd wear on your shirt (blouse, hat, etc.) to make a statement, but it's digital and it sings...

Some samples are below. Click "play" on any button and after a little while you'll see the link to get the URL to post on Facebook and the code needed to embed that one on a website. Don't see the button you're looking for? Email me and maybe I've got just what want... (Or maybe not, but I'd love to hear from you anyway.)


Here's one for my dear departed friend and comrade, Bob Steck, who was a veteran of the Spanish Civil War.
